ABOUT AUSTREY SCHOOL
The school is set in beautiful countryside surroundings in Austrey, which is a small attractive village situated in the northernmost point of Warwickshire not far from Twycross Zoo, the towns of Atherstone and Tamworth and borders with Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
The current school building catered for children aged between 5 and 8 until 1995, after which it was extended to cater for children in the full primary age range.
There is an independently run pre-school building on site, enabling staff from both settings to work closely together for the benefit of the children. We have a well established induction programme in place which ensures that the children transferring to us from pre-school settle in quickly.
We work closely with other local schools, including The Polesworth (secondary) School to which most of our children transfer, collectively known as the Anker Valley Partnership, enabling specialist resources, teachers, learning support assistants and equipment to be shared, as well as visits and workshops to be organised jointly. Transition activities ensure the year 6 children are well prepared for their move to the High School.
Our strong links with the church, local community and external organisations ensure that our children receive a broad range of experiences within the school day and at before and after school clubs.
The school is well resourced to meet the needs of all the children in our care regardless of ability or background.
